YIKES! Kevin did it again! The beloved sequel to Home Alone is now an adorable picture book for the whole family.
It’s the holidays and Kevin doesn’t want to go on his family vacation to Florida. Amid the chaos and confusion of the airport, he accidentally boards the wrong plane and ends up alone (again!) in New York City. Kevin goes sightseeing, checks into a hotel, and enjoys limo rides, all courtesy of his dad’s credit card. But then he makes a shocking discovery: the burglars who tried to rob his house last year are back, and this time they plan to rob a toy store on Christmas Eve! Can Kevin stop them and save Christmas with the help of some new friends? Charmingly illustrated by Kim Smith, this sweet and funny adaptation will delight fans of the Home Alone franchise, young and old alike.
I’ve always liked the Home Alone movies—the first two anyway—and this was a really cool picture book that I’d loved to have had as a child! The drawings were super cute and the story followed the movie very well!
The story not only had fun things, but also life lessons such as with the lady with the birds! Definitely a great Christmas read! My only complaint is that I wish Tim Curry’s character from the movie actually looked like Tim Curry!
Have you seen the movie?
